  1. Photo App opening new windows


    As far as I know, the only way to get pictures to open in a single window is with the old photo viewer.


    Is there no way to get pictures to open in a single window with the Windows 10 Photo App?

    :)

  2. Photos are opening with Paint instead of Photos app

    Hello,

    It's likely that your default application for opening photos is Paint. To change your default program in Windows 10 from
    Paint to the Photo app, we suggest that you perform the following steps:

    • On the Start menu, select Settings.
    • Go to System, then go to Default apps.
    • Select Photos or any app that you like to be the default under
      Photo viewer.

    Update us if the steps above helped you in resolving your concern.
